This Restored Rockland Farmhouse Charms With Hudson River Vistas

Known as the Green House, this stunning 1870s Victorian in Rockland County overlooks the Hudson River and features truly unique architecture.

Address: 307 River Rd, Nyack


Description: Overlooking the beautiful Hudson River, this restored Victorian farmhouse is quite a stunner in Rockland County. The owner, an interior designer by trade, renovated the entire property in 1988. Painted in moss and woody shades of green, the original clapboard exterior of the home was restored. In addition, the trelliswork on the front porch was restored to preserve the traditional history of architecture in Victorian homes.

While walking up the beautiful front porch staircase, notice the fish-scale shingles (added in the renovation process). With attention to detail, the front porch is a mastery of old and new. Residents can spend their days relaxing outside on the spacious front porch. Of course, they enjoy stunning Hudson River views and a peaceful neighborhood atmosphere.


When winter hits and snow falls outside, stay warm next to the two wood-burning fireplaces within the Rockland farmhouse. In addition, grab a cup of hot chocolate or tea and head to one of the large windows throughout the home to capture the beautiful view of the Hudson River. With an inviting and cozy vibe, this home is perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
